Summary:
We call them personal computers, but our interactions with them are utterly impersonal, via a keyboard and mouse. In this episode of Scientific American Frontiers, Alan Alda gets to communicate with computers that know who he is, where he is, what he's doing and even how he's feeling. The ultimate such computer--actually a cute and cuddly robot--is being developed in a unique collaboration between Hollywood and MIT.
